One of the best kept secrets in Costa del Este. A small place with a big heart. This is a sure bet if you want to eat great food and to receive a warm and good service.

Staff was corteous and gave us time to fully decide on our choices for meal. Steaks were seasoned perfectly but, slightly over-cooked, we ordered rare, got "medium rare"; my wife ordered a salad and she stated it was very good.

We tried three diferent meat dishes in this noisy small restaurant and the entraña was by far the best. Very good prices and the small portions are just enough for 1 person.

Empanadas are great. Dont leave without having the carne molina con aceituna y uevos. Those are great. The service has to be improved as they take forever, but it is a no miss place given the great empanadas.

Just trust me on this one and go for the empanadas. They are all great. The steak options are a good choice for a business lunch or a quick dinner.
